Villa Marquesa was one of the first homes built on the Atlantic/ Ocean Side of Ramrod Key, in Breeze Swept Beach Estates, that's why its architecture is very distinctive and unique. The home is built on a perfect east-west / north-south axis in order to take advantage of the Tropical Caribbean Trade winds. Rarley do visitors use the air-conditioning system in winter and we have never had to use the heater!! The home is decorated in authentic Caribbean Colonial style and filled with teak and mahogany furniture which give you the feeling of staying at one of the great Caribbean Beachside Villas. The house's name is also unique and has alot of history behind it. The name "Villa Marquesa" means the "Grand Home of the Marquis" in Spanish. The Owner's grandfather was a a Spanish Marquis and part of the Spanish Royalty and Nobility. Her family history in Spain goes back 750 years, to a time of chivalry, conquests and conquistadors.
In and around our island we have several places to eat, drink and be merry like: all within a short walking, biking or driving distance: Boondocks Grille, 5 Brothers Cuban Market and Cafe and the Looe Key Reef Tiki Bar are local favorites. They offer everything from Cuban Coffe "Bucci", Cuban sandwhiches, great beers, elaborate fish entrees, miniature golf courses, a gift shops, dive tours, live daily music and weekly bar specials.

In the beginning of our vacation, everything was going well. About 3 days into it, the toilet got clogged (not our fault) and we had to call the house keeper, so he called the plummer and he fixed the issue for $315. Keep in mind that our deposit was for $1000! About 3 months later we receive a check for $500!!!
I contacted the owner Miguel and he stated that it was our fault it got clogged! …
